- Liquid Vitamin D3 for Babies
- Dietary Supplement
Vitamin D supplementation for infants is recommended because breastfed infants generally do not obtain adequate Vitamin D from other sources.
Basic guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Institute of Medicine for vitamin D supplementation for babies:
If breast-feeding or partially breast-feeding your baby: Give your baby 400 international units (IU) of liquid vitamin D a day — starting in the first few days after birth. Continue giving your baby 400 IU of vitamin D until you wean your baby and he or she is drinking 32 ounces (approximately 1 liter) a day of vitamin D-fortified formula or, after age 12 months, whole cow’s milk.
If feeding your baby less than 32 ounces (about 1 liter) a day of a Vitamin D-fortified formula: Give you baby 400 IU of liquid vitamin D a day — starting in the first few days after birth. Continue giving your baby 400 IU of vitamin D until he or she drinks at least 32 ounces (approximately 1 liter) a day.
Suggested Use for Babies Under 3 Yrs: 1 drop daily, added to formula, milk, juice or other foods. Shake well before using.
Fractionated coconut oil (medium chain triglycerides from coconut).
Do not exceed 1 drop per day unless directed by your healthcare professional.
